Ubisoft had a lot to offer at E3 2016, but among all those games and awesome demos, almost everyone missed a key bit of news. To celebrate 30 years of its existence, Ubisoft is giving away one game a month for the next 7 months.
Kicking off the free game bonanza is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It’s an old game for sure, but it’s also easily among the best and most loved game franchises available today. Come to think of it, it’s been almost 8 years since we saw anything of the franchise. Ubisoft, when are you going to do something about it?
To avail the offer, simply head over to the Ubi Club site, register or sign in and the game will be added to your account. Ubi Club also means UPlay, and while we understand that gamers hate moving beyond the comfortable confines of Steam, UPlay isn’t half bad, especially if you're getting free games.
EA has a similar system in place with their Origin store, except that they're offering free games to everyone with no fixed timeline. They're doing this via their On The House program.
In other news, the games announced and showcased at E3 by Ubisoft are all available for pre-order.
